Passport Stamps
#1
Hi All
Does anyone (including the GC) know why my passport is stamped most times when I enter or leave from the airport?  Most times, but not always?  I offer my passport and TIE at the border check.  My passport is scrutinised and stamped, but on rare occasions, my TIE is accepted and scrutinised, and my passport not even looked at. Surely that's correct?  Don't the stamps relate to the 90/180 day Schengen area visit limits, which don't apply if you have a residence card?  

Last year, I flew out from Las Palmas, and my TIE was accepted.  At the time, I'd given my passport to the GC border officer and mentioned I had a TIE, and handed it over.  The officer said my passport was unnecessary, and returned it.  Do the FV border officers actually not have any training on immigration matters, and just repeat the mantra 'stamp the Brit passports'?  Bizarre...

When entering and leaving Spain all I now show is my TIE card which has been accepted ok at FV airport last June, July & August and at the ports of Bilbao, Santander, Huelva and Cadiz on the mainland plus at PDR, Corralejo and Playa Blanca here in the Canaries.

I have tried "discussing" this at the airport and got nowhere.
Its simply that there is too much confusion between 1 year, 2 year,and those issued under the withdrawal system.
Also if the civil guardia are on duty then there is never a problem,BUT if there is a black shirt from the border Police trying to make an impression,then you will make get sense talking to your hat.

I now agree with David re who is on duty, when we arrived on Tuesday presented our TIE's as in the past but were asked for our passports which were stamped, when asked why they said as the TIE's were temporary they stamp your passport.
